I was watching Prometheus earlier this week and it struck me how much Noomi Rapace (Sherlock Holmes Game of Shadows, the original Girl with a Dragon Tattoo films) looked like Carole Ann Ford who played the Doctor's granddaughter Susan in the show's first 10 serials. Look:
And what's REALLY crazy is that it would mean Noomi Rapace would have played TWO characters bearing a classic companion's name. Susan, of course, and as her character is called in Prometheus, Dr. Elizabeth Shaw! Coincidence? Or a wink at Doctor Who by a director who once almost worked as designer on a serial that had more or less the same plot as Alien? YOU DECIDE!
